OSI Industries and International Expansion

OSI Industries is an international organization that seeks to expand to other territories across the world. The organization is very active when it comes to its expansion efforts for the last two years. The company bought a food processing facility in the summer of 2016. Moreover, the company also purchased a warehouse both in Chicago. The warehouse and the processing facility belonged to Tyson Foods. The facility has 20,000 square feet of space, and it is situated near another property that belongs to OSI Industries. This purchase came at the right time as the company seeks to expand more.

Customers’ needs are changing everywhere and at a very high rate. Organizations have to come up with the best mechanisms to ensure that they can meet these ever-changing demands of customers. For OSI, according to OSI North America’s senior executive vice-president Kevin Scott, the additional space will allow it to cater to these needs. The company was pleased with the purchase that is meant to enlarge the networks of the organization. OSI Group acquires Baho Food.

The facility was used by Tyson Foods to store the prepared food products, but the organization had announced of its plans to close it in 2015. Tyson spokesperson said that there are also plans to close down another facility that is located in Jefferson. The closing down of these two facilities will allow Tyson foods to concentrate on how to improve its productivity. The company has other facilities meant for food processing, and they will transfer the workload of the closing facilities to these other facilities to cover the additional capacity.

The head offices of OSI Industries are located in Aurora Illinois. The company is leading in the world when it comes to offering value-added food items with protein and other kinds of foods. OSI has 65 facilities operating in 17 countries. With its quest for more facilities in other parts of the world, OSI Industries have also bought significant shares in Baho Food. This took place in 2016. Baho Food produces deli meats, convenience foods as well as snacks. The organization serves its food products to food service organizations as well as to retailers. With the acquisition of Baho Foods, OSI will be able to increase its presence in Europe according to the president and COO of the company, David McDonald. OSI can produce the kind of food the Baho Food delivers. However, Baho Food will assist OSI to enlarge its operations when it comes to the kinds of foods that customers expect from OSI.
